Chris Henry Must Not Like Training Camp
Well, it’s either that, or he doesn’t like playing in the NFL. I mean, what else could explain his ability to consistently screw things up for himself by constantly doing his best to take vacations at Cincinnati’s local lock-up. Yes, the awesome life of Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry has been upgraded to “even more awesome” as Henry turned himself in for allegedly punching an 18-year old male in the face and breaking his windshield with a bottle.
Henry, who served an eight-game suspension last season for continued legal trouble (brilliantly documented by With Leather), has probably written his ticket out of the league. Permanently.
If you recall, when Henry’s last suspension was lifted, Commissioner Goodell told him it would be his last chance.
I’d say he just used that up, wouldn’t you?
Of course, Henry could still be exonerated and these accusations could wind up being a ruse, but it’s hard to give the benefit of the doubt to a player who has no concept of staying out of trouble. Not even one iota.
Naturally, this news is just another slap in the face for a franchise that actually looked like it was ready to join the rest of the NFL by being competitive two seasons ago. Once you add the all that Chad Johnson hub-bub, it’s becoming clear the Bengals may NEVER escape their “Bungles” moniker.
Not with stuff like this Chris Henry business — combined with not one but two terrible free agent gaffes — happening EVERY OFF SEASON. Oh well, here’s some Chris Henry mugshot goodness for you to enjoy.
